    his could be due to corrupt data in the video files. Also, it could be caused by CODEC's on your system - these are responsible for DECoding the video/audio files on your system.

    Many CODECS including DivX and the ones installed by Nero are well known for these sorts of errors.

    So, if it only happens in a folder where you have downloaded video, probably bad files. If it happens in other folders (where you have files you created) probably a CODEC issue.
